I bought this for personal use, and found it to be a wonderful flavor enhancing additive for a great pot of soup. It was a bit too rich when used alone with a normally salty meat like crab meat, if used as directed. My first attempt was with Cream of Crab soup. The first batch was far too salty, because of the additional salt contained in the crab meat. With a bit of tweaking however, it turned out absolutely great! I'll share the recipe for anyone wanting to make some. Ingredients: 2 lb Fresh Lump Crab Meat 1/2 lb Unsalted Butter (Must b e unsalted) 1 or 2 sticks of Celery finely diced 1/2 Gallon Whole Milk (not half/half - Using butter) 1/3 Cup All Purpose Flour (Will absorb more salt) 2 tsp Nutmeg 1/2 tsp Allspice 2 tsp Ground White Pepper 2 Tbsp "Old Bay" Seafood Seasoning 2 Cups Chef's Companion Soup Base Pre mix 1/2 of the milk with Chef's Companion soup base while cold and set aside. Melt butter, and sweat celery over medium low heat, being careful not to scorch the butter nor brown the celery. Wisk in flour till smooth and bubbling gently. DO NOT SCORCH! Slowly add milk while continuing to wisk Reserve 1/2 of Old Bay Seasoning for garnish Mix in spices and milk/soup base mixture Continue to heat and wisk until soup reaches desired thickness. More heat may be used, but caution is advised to avoid bottom scorching and sticking. When done, it should be thick enough to suspend meat while standing. If Brandy is desired, add it now (optional) Reduce heat, and gently fold in crab meat, being careful not to break individual lumps if possible, but just enough to separate lumps from each other. Serve with garnish of Old Bay on top (Nutmeg may be substituted), and hot crusty bread slices or crackers. Enjoy the look on your guests faces when they experience this one!

We use this in our restaurant. Makes any cream soup you want. The quality is outstanding and the price is great too. I always try to buy it when I'm buying something else to save a little on shipping.

Made some great CHEESEBURGER SOUP with this cream soup base in about 15 minutes. Fried some chopped onions, celery and hamburger, added 2 quarts of water to half of the package of soup base along with some American cheese. Flavor was great without additional seasonings. Great!

we tried this to make our clam chowder and cream of mushroom soups.using real cream is much better than using this product.my customers would not accept this
Robert P. Posted on 10/07/2017
very nice price for the amount, and very good taste. nice thickness of the cream base. I would order this again. thank you for all your great products and great price's.

Not as good as a scratch made soup base but this taste just fine considering it can sit on a shelf and wait to be used for a long while.
Travis F. from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on 07/06/2017
Can't say enough good about this product. I use it a great deal. Just the other day I was called upon to knock out a cream of mushroom soup. I mixed some of the soup base into chicken stock and started that on the stove as I sauteed some shallots, brown mushrooms and fines herbs -- added them to cook for a few minutes before running through it with a stick blender. I had the bowls plated with a swirl of heavy cream and chopped parsley and ready to bring to the table in less than fifteen minutes. The soup was greeted with raves. This is a lifesaver in the kitchen. I buy lots of it....SIX STARS!

Great soup base, makes one gallon in total, but the texture is nice, and you can make so many different soups, perfect quality product from webrestraunt.
David H. Posted on 02/27/2017
The instructions tell you to use this entire package to make a large pot of cream soup base - however, I use just a bit of it in my soups to thicken them up and add a different depth of flavor. Works great!
Lindsie B. Posted on 12/23/2016
Making creamy soups has never been easier. They are especially popular as the weather cools. They are comfort foods. This product helps to produce good tasty soups for the wintry months especially.
Tonya L. Posted on 12/03/2016
Very easy base to use, even at home. I use it for a number of things and it's very convenient to have it prepackaged and ready to use at any time.

The Chef's Companion Powdered Cream Soup Base is a great convenience product for quick, hearty dishes. I had good results with this product for Chicken and Dumplings, and will purchase again.
Valerie A. Posted on 09/20/2016
Really like this cream base!! Tasty for cream soups, just make sure to add more chicken base or seasoning to give it the flavor you are wanting.
Lina W. Posted on 07/12/2016

Christopher B. from quinipet camp and retreat Posted on 06/06/2016
We have used this cream soup base in our corn chowder, fish chowder and as a thickener in our stews. It has a pleasant flavor and adds a nice texture to our cooking.
Mardee B. from Floral Creations Posted on 11/16/2015
This is the first time using an instant soup base I love it My husband cant have dairy products so this woks for us I made potato ham soup with it he ate five bowls with no problems I put a container in the freezer thawed and reheated no breaking of he base looked just like when I made it Now I want some broccoli cheese soup using this love it

Good tasting cream soup base, keep in mind it has MSG so if you are allergic or don't like MSG then be aware. its a great value if you are in a pinch
Fares T. Posted on 04/21/2015
This is a staple in our kitchen. Using real cream or roux bases for soups can break, especially when adding cheese and look terrible. But this soup is an insurance policy against that. It is emulsified and creates a perfect texture & flavor for any of your soup needs. I've used more than called for to make a thicker product for macaroni & cheese or sauce for scalloped potatoes. Can't say enough good things about this soup base.
Dustin P. Posted on 11/12/2014
What a value for quantity and quality. I have used it as a cream soup base for everything, but also I have used it as a great substitute for any recipe that requires milk.
Amy M. Posted on 05/15/2014
I needed a great value cream soup base to substitute for the one I currently use as it was discontinued from my distributor. the product worked very good and had good flavor. However it is not vegetarian. Has chicken in the ingredient. If this is not a concern, a great product to buy.
Jim S. from Sorbello's Pizzeria Buffet Posted on 03/31/2014
Chef's Companion Bulk Powdered Cream Soup Base. What a great product to have on hand for last minute cream sauces. I would like to see better directions though. I had to experiment a bit to find the proper quantities for my use.
Barbara A. Posted on 03/11/2014
this works very well for making cream of brocolli, spinach, potato or any other type of creamy soup. I love to use this as my base, then flavor with chicken, mushrooms or other vegetables. It's fast, easy and good. A bif help in the kitchen.

I LOVE CREAM SOUPS WHICH CAN BE A TRICKY SOUP TO MAKE ...THE CREAM SOUP BASE HAS TAKEN AWAY MY FEAR OF OVER COOKING MY SOUPS AND IT TASTE FABULOUS...
Teresa M. from Suncatcher Jewelry Designs Posted on 11/21/2013
A great cream soup base I use this as the base for all my creamy soups. Makes a great chicken and dumplings adds a nice creamy flavor I wouldn't otherwise get.
Thomas W. from TRW Posted on 09/26/2013
Great soup base mix. Used it for Cream of Broccoli soup. Add milk & water. Saves money when having to make large quantity of cream based soups.
Lina B. from Doughlicious Cakes Posted on 01/30/2013
Am ordering more! Perfect for soup kettles! I followed directions, added the H20 to my soup kettle with the soup base, whisked it in and occasionally whisked until it was thick. Added my own special touches...excellent soup!
Michael V. from Jazzy Ruperts Posted on 01/16/2013
At the convenience of not having to buy half and half or using the half and half before the expiration date, this is the way to go. cheap and affordable
Hui L. Posted on 12/19/2012

The convenience of having powdered cream soup base will save you the trouble of running in and out of the grocery store. an extra bonus is saving you money on half and half milk
